Be Calm – Interior Minister

The Minister for Interior, Ambrose Dery, has called for a ceasefire between the Konkombas and Dagombas in Yendi, Northern Region.
One person is reported dead with two others severely injured after a clash between the two groups at Nakpachie in the Yendi Municipality.
About five houses have been torched in the conflict, forcing residents to flee their homes to Yendi and other surrounding towns.
Mr Dery, who was speaking in an interview with Class91.3FM’s parliamentary correspondent Ekow Annan on Thursday, 8 November 2018, said: “Everybody should remain calm and let the police and the investigative bodies take charge”.
He said police and military personnel have been deployed to the area to maintain law and order.
STV’s Sualisu Sapashini reported that a dispute ensued on Wednesday, 7 November 2018 when a drove of pigs of a Konkomba man trampled the maize farm of a Dagomba man.
Enraged by the destruction, the Dagomba man shot and killed one of the pigs, sparking a conflagration between the two ethnic groups.
With the aid of his kinsmen, the pig farmer tried to snatch the gun from the maize farmer. A Dagomba man’s leg was shot in the struggle.
This led to a reprisal attack by the Dagombas.
